REST Service for E-Cell 3

E-Cell System is an object-oriented software suite for modeling, simulation, and analysis of large scale complex systems such as biological cells. It allows many components driven by multiple algorithms with different timescales to coexist in a model. E-Cell 3 is mainly developed by the Institute for Advanced Biosciences, Keio University. E-Cell 3 supports models in the SBML standard as well as E-Cell Model description language EML.

We here provide a REST service for this E-Cell software through Bio::ECell module.
